Ofsted Inspection Report

Our current Ofsted grading: Awaiting inspection

Schools and academies are regularly inspected by Ofsted. On this page you will find a short guide to school inspections and a summary of our latest report. You can also read our full inspection report at https://reports.ofsted.gov.uk.


Information about inspections

Ofsted’s role is to make sure that organisations providing education, training and care services in England do so to a high standard for children and students.

They are responsible for:

Inspecting

  • maintained schools and academies, some independent schools, and many other educational institutions and programmes outside of higher education
  • childcare, adoption and fostering agencies and initial teacher training

Regulating

  • a range of early years and children’s social care services, making sure they’re suitable for children and potentially vulnerable young people

Reporting

  • publishing reports of our findings so they can be used to improve the overall quality of education and training
  • informing policymakers about the effectiveness of these services

Ofsted is a member of the National Preventive Mechanism which monitors and reports on places of detention.

Ofsted priorities

They will ensure that:

  • all of the work is evidence-led
  • evaluation tools and frameworks are valid and reliable
  • frameworks are fair
  • aim to reduce inspection burdens and make our expectations and findings clear
  • target our time and resources where they can lead directly to improvement

Ofsted have written a useful guide for parents and carers. You can find the latest version at https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/school-inspections-a-guide-for-parents

Sharing your views about the academy with Ofsted

During an inspection, Ofsted will look at responses to their Parent View online survey at www.parentview.ofsted.gov.uk.

You can complete this survey at any time during the school year, although during inspections there is an additional comments box you can complete.
